I’m back from TNNA and suffering from that odd mixture of exhaustion and exhilaration that comes from long hours spent in the company of others who do this funny thing I do. I both want to take a very long nap, and want to start in on all the new projects that came to mind while I was there. I think what I’ll likely do instead is the super exciting stuff like laundry and grocery shopping.
I’ll try to share bits and pieces of what happened while I was there over the next few weeks. But for now, I have to share one of my more unexpected finds. It’s pretty normal to come back from TNNA with the odd skein of yarn. I try to be very careful and not take yarn that I don’t have an immediate project for, though every now and then a skein slips past my defenses. But the things that follow one home from TNNA are generally of a yarn or yarn-related nature. They are not usually things like this.
But, during booth tear down, it became clear that this dress form was in dire need of a good home. And as I’ve already filled out all the necessary paperwork to become a Home for Wayward Knitting Props, it seemed natural for her to follow me home. Points to anyone who gets the name. And yes, my office does look funny to other people, but I’m coming to terms with that.
